Magic Library

  1. I'm looking to expand my magic library. What books do you guys have? I have Expert at the Card Table and Modern Coin Magic.
     
  2. Last count was somewhere north of 200 so I'll skip listing the titles.

    What are you looking to learn?
     
  3. Goals.

  4. Just takes money and the patience to find them.

  5. @DominusDolorum This question is off topic. Judging by your profile pic, are you by any chance a Death Note fan?

  6. My best book is "Mark Wilson's Complete Course in Magic"... I found a copy on ebay that was lightly used!

    I know many other posts are on here giving lists of books that people have posted. Do a 'search' for magic books....I think you will find lots of lists....

    Good luck
     
  7. I am! I sort of appropriated this into my identity for several reasons:
    1. I love Death Note (See link for my reaction to the Netflix adaptation: https://i.kym-cdn.com/photos/images/newsfeed/001/449/977/aba.gif)
    2. When my partner and I met we bonded over Death Note.
    3. One day we exchanged gifts and we gave each other the same thing; an L pendant. I wore this every day for 6 years until the clasp broke and lost it in the snow. I am still heartbroken over this.

  8. That is so cool!!! Death Note is my favorite anime and I completely agree with your reaction of the Netflix adaptation lol. I also bonded with a friend over Death Note and he helped me film some street magic. Just this last Christmas one of my other friends gave me the complete series on bluray. Sorry to hear about the pendant, I can't imagine how cool that would look to see in person. Nice to see another fan of the series.

  16. I've been in magic for over 24 years so the book collection is at 532 books and growing.
    To anyone new to magic books just start with the Tarbell course get all the classics so you build a strong foundation, then with your new knowledge start buying what interests you. Maybe your a card guy, a coin guy or a mentalist ect....
    Never stop reading it truly helps build you into a creative magician as you have you visualize in your head what your reading. Your interpretation will be different from other magicians and will set you apart from the crowd.
